Report of Overseers of Poor. 



Agreeable to custom, we present the Annual Report of 
this department. 

There has been but little change of consequence at the 
Almshouse since our last Report, and the expenses have 
varied but little from the year past. We have admitted 
thirteen, discharged but one, and have at the present time 
forty-three inmates, — a larger number than usual, and as 
a class they require more care, and can do less labor than 
is usually the case, making it necessary to employ more help, 
both in and out of the house. 

We would again most respectfully call the attention of the 
voters of the town to the fact that it is very necessary to have 
a better supply of water for the use of the house. The sub- 
ject was brought before the Annual Meeting last year, and 
it was decided to defer the matter until the present year. 
The Overseers now feel it their duty to have an article in- 
serted in the warrant asking for an appropriation for the 
purpose. We have made some inquiries, and think a wind- 
mill could be procured and put in working order for the 
sum of $500, including pipe and reservoirs. 

The relief out of the Almshouse has been large, especially 
at the Lunatic Hospital, as we have more inmates there 
than ever before. A considerable part of this appropriation 
is paid out for other towns, which amount will be reimbursed 
to this town.

Report of the Chief Engineer 



OF THE 



Fire Department 



To the Board op Selectmen: 

Gentlemen, — In accordance with the Regulations of the 
Fire Department, I submit the following Report. 

The force of the department consists of five Engineers, 
sixteen members of the Steamer Company, and forty-three 
members of the Shawshin Company at Ballard Yale. 

The apparatus consists of one third-class steam fire-engine, 
and one hand-engine, with a hose-carriage for each ; also one 
four-wheeled horse hose-carriage, carrying 1000 feet of hose. 

We have 1800 feet of hose in good condition, with hooks 
ladders and ropes at each engine-house. 

There have been fourteen alarms of fire daring the past year, 
as follows : 

March 13, 1883. Barn of David Richardson. Total loss : 
Insurance, $1200 ; Insurance paid, 1873.52. 

April 14, 1883. House owned by David Richardson. 
Damage slight. 

April 22, 1883. Woods at Frye Tillage. 

April 29, 1883. Chimney in house of H. W. French. 

April 30, 1883. Wood of G. W. Simmons, Ballard Vale. 

May. 2, 1883. Woods at Ballard Vale. 

May 4, 1883. Woods at Ballard Vale. 

May 8, 1883. Woods at Marland Village. 

June 12, 1883. At Craighead and Kintz' works. Dam- 
age slight. 

June 12, 1883. Bonfire. 



47 

June 21, 1883. House of Patrick Conway. 

Aug. 14, 1883. Woods of J. H. Flint, West Parish. 

Sept. 14, 1883. Out of town limits. 

Nov. 19, 1883. Wood of George W. Simmons, Ballard Vale. 

During the past year we have found several hundred feet 
of hose unfit for service, and it will be necessary to purchase 
new hose during the coming year. 

I would again call your attention to the necessity of a 
proper means of heating the new engine-house. Last year 
there was an appropriation of two hundred dollars for a 
steam heating apparatus for heating the water in the boiler 
of the engine. The Engineers did not deem it advisable to 
expend that sum ; but are of opinion that a heater should 
be furnished capable of heating the house and hose-tower 
when needed. 

I would again especially call your attention to the insuffi- 
cient supply of waier in the centre of the town, and in the 
vicinity of our public buildings. 

To make the department complete, we should have a light 
hook and ladder truck, for which we have ample accommo- 
dation in the new engine-house; also a pair of horses, to be 
kept in the engine-house, for use in this department when 
needed ; at other times they could be used by the Town for 
other purposes. 

I would recommend that $2000 be appropriated for the 
running expenses of the Fire Department for the ensuing 
year, and that $1000 be appropriated for the purchase of 
hose.

Report of Cemetery Committee. 



The Cemetery Committee herewith submit their Annual 
Report, together with the receipts and expenditures for the 
year ending February 8th, 1884. 

The face wall has been extended the entire length of the 
cleared land on the west side of the Cemetery and a gate 
put in at the southern entrance. The wall has been banked 
inside, and the avenues gravelled and new ones laid out. 
The shrubbery has been trimmed, and pipe has been laid for 
draining the grounds at the north end of the Cemetery. 

The Committee have done the best they could with the 
limited appropriation granted. If it were known that all 
the receipts would be expended in improvements on the 
premises it is thought a larger number of lots would be sold. 
They respectfully ask an appropriation of $250, together with 
the avails of lots sold during the ensuing year.

Twelfth Annual Report 

OF THE 

Trustees of Memorial Hall. 



The annual examination of the property by the Trustees 
has shown everything about the building and Library to be 
in good order. Thanks to the donation of Mr. John Byers, 
of which full mention was made in the Report of last year, 
the Trustees have no pressing wants to urge in their Report. 

The Library is every year increasing in value, and offers to 
all who have the desire for improvement an inexhaustible 
fund of good reading. It has been the aim of the Library 
Committee to add the best books in every department. It 
will greatly ajd them in the matter of selection if those who 
use the Library will, without fail, make application for all 
books which they have sought, but failed to find, on its shelves. 
That every facility may be afforded to those who desire to 
make use of the more substantial books, the privilege of 
taking out more than one book will be allowed to citizens of 
the town who are studying any subject with a view to writ- 
ing. To acquire such a privilege it will be necessary for a 
written application to be made to the Trustees stating the 
subject of study and the number of books desired ; and all 
books thus loaned will be liable to recall whenever asked for 
by others. 

For further particulars of the year's work we refer the 
reader to the full report of our pains-taking Librarian. 

Respectfully submitted,

Town Clerk's Report 



To the Selectmen of the Town of Andover : 

Gentlemen, — I present to you my Report for the Year 

1883. 

I again call the attention of the townspeople to the many 
nameless spaces in the Birth records of previous years. A 
list of then may be seen in the Post-office. 

The name is the vital point in the record of a birth. 
Private records may be lost or destroyed ; in such case the 
public records must be the only reliance for the decision 
of important questions. The Clerk receives many letters of 
inquiry concerning- Births, Marriages, and Death?, and to 
enable him to give satisfactory replies the records must be 
complete. 



The vital statistics of the year are as follows
